fatty lungs

are lung nodules and fatty lungs the same thing?
Avatar dr f tn
Hi,
How are you? Lung nodules or small masses of tissue in the lung can be benign or malignant. Benign lung tumors include hamartomas  which are made up of tissue from the lung's lining as well as tissue such as fat and cartilage. They are usually located in the periphery of the lung. Hope this helps. Take care and regards.
